company with extraordinarily small economy. the fact it would precipitate a run with the greek banks or italian banks and bring down the entire system in europe, fumbling along, kicking the can down the road is really pretty fried and we know from experience these events, whether in the balkins with the shooting of an arch duke or whether in cyprus with the shooting of a banking system can lead to fairly significant consequences for the entire european continent and us. >> so far, the worst-case scenario hasn't happened yet. so far. that's good. let me ask you, steve forbes. do you believe that the united states can make itself immune? are we strong enough economically, and financially, to withstand the kind of worst-case scenario that senator gregg discussed? >> the answer is no. we should have learned that from 2008 when these dominos start to topple. it hits everybody. and this is what is so inexplicable. why did the germans draw the line on this, for sheer domestic political reasons. they don't want to be bailing out russian oil gargs. they have an election this year. they have k

[♪ theme music ♪] >> bill: good morning, everybody. itit i is s mondayayararchch 1 18th. welcome to the "full court press" here on current tv. we're bringing you up to date on all of the latest developments here in our nation's capitol, around the country and the globe, whatever is happening we'll tell you about it. and you get to tell us what it means to you by giving us a call at 866-55-press, joining us on twitter @bpshow, and there is a civil war among republicans. sarah palin said karl rove if he's so smart he ought to go back to texas and run for office, and karl ro
and i think most of the country, greta, hear the president's articulated view of the economy, they hear the same rhetoric that led illinois to be a financial basket case. chase revenues, the revenues underperform. don't deal with the underlying spending problems and now what's going on in illinois? almost 10 billion dollars in unpaid bills, almost the second highest per capita debt of any state in the union, higher than average unemployment rate, a downgrade in the credit rating and all of these things are exactly what president obama portends as he articulates he needs more and more and more reven revenue. when you said that to him what did he say? >> look, barack obama is an incredibly skilled guy as relates to these types of questions. when it came down to it, he doesn't have an answer because there is no answer. >> what did he say to you? >> he said oh, it's a bipartisan problem in illinois and goes back and wants to relitigate illinois history, but i think what his challenge is, how to create a bipartisan agenda in this -- in this town when what he's doing is redefining terms. so,
and the austerity he is putting in place has caused the economy to be really slow. >> a lot of tax increases over there in europe. we look at this austerity bit. i want to talk about this for a second. >> i want to get back to the budget then. >> talk about what is happening in washington. you know, economics discussed on tv or on the internet or on twitter, it's so depressing, because people really don't know what they are talking about and they just sort of boil it down and there is this belief through the years, that tax cuts are not a tool used. of course, tax cuts are a tool used and tax increases something that traditional are against in bad times. we hear about austerity across great britain and we never hear about the tax increases. when you talk about the fact they cut and slash spending at the same time they hike taxes, it really was a formula made to fail. >> spending cuts and tax increases both take money out of the economy and slow the economy and, yes, they create this idea of austerity. but, look. it's a balancing problem. on the one hand you need to deal with it budgets and defici
and champion growth. our economy is stagnant and a lot of people are hurting. and that's where my focus remains, every day. >> shannon: you mentioned that republicans and democrats, you question whether or not they have read the constitution recently and if they adhere to it and if they are really familiar with what it is at its core. how do you reconfigure? how does either party get back to that? >> i think we are seeing a rejuvenation in the republican party. visaid for a while. i think -- i have said for a while, i think the best thing that happened to republicans was to get our teeth kicked in by 2008. by 2006, 2008, i think that republicans had stopped standing for principle. we saw a new generation of leaders step forward in 2010 and more continue in 2012, who are really focused on getting back to our core principles, getting back to the constitution and getting back to free market principles. i think far too many republicans had gone along to get along. had agreed with democrats and exploding the size of government -- i mean, that's how we have gotten a $16.5 trillion debt. i think the p
numbers on the handling of the economy -- >> if you were a republican right now you'd say i'm sorry, wait a minute. five minutes ago you were beating us about the head and talking about how terrible things were because of the no-good awful republican congress and now we're going to have lob sterp together and suddenly we're friends. gwen: the president was allowed to -- wasn't allowed to eat the blueberry pie because it hadn't been tasted by official tasters. >> maybe but that's why i couldn't be president. everything john says is true. his numbers are going down. republican numbers are already as low as they can go. but the president has to decide what he wants his second -- second term to be. lurching from crisis to crisis or actually getting something done? even on immigration and gun control where you know he really wants to get something done, the goal is not just to get a budget or a grand bargain but even if he can get 10, 15, 20 republicans on his side on those issues then he's going to be able to accomplish something. gwen: are those republicans there? >> i think there are some w

's less impinging on the economy. you keep hearing the economy is ready to take off. if we can get the government out of the way for a couple years we can get some really nice growth and that will change things up and i think they are sceeding in denuclearizing our conflicts. no fiscal cliffs, no debt defaults. let the economy grow for a change. >> woodruff: what are you hearing. >> the government has to get out of the way, i love that. that's a great one after what we've been through in this country with absolutely no control. and we just learned again this week that the bank's too big to fail, too big to be reprimanded, controlled by the federal government. but i'd say this, judy. there's an old line in politics you dance with the girl who -- barack obama didn't do that. for the past seven years he's gone into hundreds if not thousands of rooms, people with large egos, people with great accomplishments, people who are great skeptical toward him and he went in and he charmed them to the point not only they supported him they wrote checks for him. he comes to washington and that s

to do it this way, as for 2014, i thi it depends on the circumstances in the economy. if there is more obama fatigue. lou: can i say, watching the republican party with all prevail -- tre veil, i think that everyone better give up on idea of doing anything with the democrats and letting the economy doing the intellectual heavy lifting for the republican party, they better get ready to go. because, this is not going to be a default election, just as 2012 was. i have to -- i hate to do it, but we have to right there. anyway, thank yo thank you very, that is it for us, we hope you will be us tomorrow, congressman frank wolf of join us. on what is going on in the obama justice department, from new york. york. >> you know every liberal's dream that government seizing your money out right, there is nothing you can do about it. now no cyprus they could find out the hard way, this tiny island nation sent a tsunami shockwave to the rest of the world, keeping the banks closed until they find a more palatable way to. welcome i am neil cavuto, you got 10 grand in a bank account. how about waking
in a trillion dollars. you would still be left with a deficit and you would wreck the economy. martha: interesting lesson. stuart, thanks very much. we'll be watching it throughout the day as i know you will. let's look at bigger picture of europe's debt crisis. five countries needed bailouts from the european central bank and imf. greece, spain, ireland, portugal as stuart mentioned. germany the fifth biggest. great britain at number eight. france with the 9th largest. italy at number ten. they all shrunk in the last quarter of last year. europe is basically contracting. the eurozone is losing huge numbers of jobs. a record 19 million people are unemployed. it is a tough picture and one we need to watch closely here at home. bill: sure do. no telling when that thing will get straightened out. >>> more rough water for carnival cruise lines. another disabled ship of vacationers, limping back to port. legend arriving yesterday. a leading senator calling for a passenger bill of rights. what would be in that bill? peter doocy live in washington. what would this bill of rights do, peter? >
is -- we've got two crisises going on. one we are in a job crisis, a slow economy, and how do you address that, austerity and cuts, spending cuts, and raising taxes, and the republicans are right about that raising taxes slows the economy, cutting spending close the economy. we are trying to deal with both of those crisis at the same time. we've got to 3.5 trillion in revenue increases and spending cuts while the economy has continued to sort of grind slowly. i think what we're looking at now, what we're hoping i think, everybody hopes both side can come together on it, again, how do we get to the 4 trillion that bowles-simpson recommended without killing the economy? and i think that's why you get both these sets of facts that are true. both side are actually right about this. now the question is -- and we've avoided killing the economy by trying to address it. jon: everybody a grows that the long-term driver of the problem are the programs like medicaid, social security. so this president doesn't have to run again. why not do something bold and tell americans, you know, if you're under
, we like to see that because it means the economy is doing better. of course, we talk how the federal reserve is playing a role in the rallywell. standing behind the economy and keeping the interest rates low and making sure that we can keep this economy bubbling along. so, every day we're watching this and every day it's going higher, harris. >> so you're sitting at home and not a big time investor. watching your retirement funds, is now a good time to put money in stocks. >> the people we're talking to saying he we could have a retrenchment, 2, 5, maybe more on the big board, the dow stocks and that's an opportunity for people to get back in if we have a pullback, that's what i would wait for. if you've got a long time horizon, be in stocks, you want to make sure you're going to fund your retirement with investments that last over a lifetime, not over 20 minutes or two seconds, like the pros sometimes do, harris. >> gerri willis, thank you very much. libyan authorities reportedly holding a person in custody tonight in connection with the terror attack on the u.s. outpost in benghazi
challenge of dealing with our economy. meaning, he would be a true leader and we would have a budget that cuts entitlements strips money from programs from those who actually need it. and it balances out. maybe that's why the president likes to stay at home in the white house after all. joining me is peter welch of vermont, who had a chance to meet with the president today. congressman, thank you for being on "viewpoint" this evening. >> thank you. >> john: you met with the president earlier. how would you describe the meeting? were you encouraged at all by what you heard? >> quite a bit? >> john: really? >> yes, the president had a brutal campaign and he won on a very explicit commitment that he would about up the economy bring down the deficit. that was the argument to bring down the debt. there is not a disagreement between him and mr. boehner about the debt. it's how we do it and when we do it. it was reassuring when he said he was not going to chase a bad deal. he was asked about the cpi which was a great concern to democrats. what he said was look, he's going to totally maintai
are not helping people to improve their conditions. the scandals have devastated our economy. host: thank you very much for the call. this is a profile on the snap program in rhode island. it is an ackerman for the supplemental nutrition assistance program. let us go to jason from britain, new jersey. caller: thank you for this great topic. i think it is one we can all relate to because everyone has to eat. it all starts with food. athink the first lady has set good example with the garden she is growing behind the white house. given to allwas americans to grow a garden. this could wipe out the hunger problem probably within one growing season. some type of tax incentive, some the of extra tax on corporations and oil companies that are getting subsidies. take a small fraction of that away. give that to citizens to grow food. around in onethis season. this is an opportunity out of anniversary -- this is an opportunity. out of adversity comes opportunity. it is a travesty to see americans going hungry. these are programs i did not even get interested in. it is easy for us to blame government. let us
that president reagan saw in inheriting the same lousy economy that president obama did. do you know we would have seven million additional new jobs in america. let met help that i can make more concrete. seven million more jobs that is equivalent to giving a job to every man, women, and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [applause] presidenttion under obama doesn't fall uniformly. if you so happen to be a tax lawyer or environmental lawyer, you're doing great right now. but i'll tell you the people that are hurting the most are those are the struggling and the least well off among us. under president obama, hispanic unemployment climbed to 10%, african american to 14%. unemployment for young people ages 16-19 over 25%. that's why for a long time i've been championing what i call opportunity conservativism, which is every republican, every conservative should focus on easing the steps of the economic ladder. splange how ore free market system has served as the most incredible engine for opportunity, for millions of people to come with nothing
the economy as the most frequently named problem in the poll. that 20%, by the way, as i said a minute ago, is highest since early june 1974. just months, actually months before richard nixon resigned. we'll be right back. no. oh dad, you remember my friend alex? yeah. the one that had the work done... good to see you. where do we go when we die? the ground. who's your girlfriend? his name is chad. and that's where babies come from.

with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation i'm not going to put out a plan on medicare or social security. you do it. maybe i'll agree to it. today is the second day of the organizing for action conference here in washington. when you hear what the president told political donors and activists last night, bear in mind he made those remarks after an hour of having his own motives questioned by house republicans repeatedly. from the outset, the president went out of his way to say his aims with ofa are not just political. >> people have been puzzled about what it is tha
$85 billion of spending and as many as three-quarters of a million jobs out of the economy this year. we've gotten used to republican leaders insisting the national debt is the nation's number one priority. but that might be so last week. here is congressman paul ryan on "face the nation" this sunday. >> we do not have a debt crisis right now, but we see it coming. we know it's irrefutably happening. if we follow the president's lead or if we pass the senate budget then we will have a debt crisis then everybody gets hurts. you know who gets hurt first the poor and the elderly. that's what we're trying to prevent from happening. >> john: preventing a debt crisis to help the poor and elderly. that sounds like a really good idea. could speaker of the house john boehner agree with congressman ryan on this? >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know that we have one looming. it could be a year, two years three years four years. it's not an immediate problem. >> john: how about canceling the sequester mr. speaker. while the national debt may not be an immediate problem sur
population and they have been stuck in a stagnant economy over a decade. if you go to europe, the same thing is happening. the native population has a declining population. your financial growth as a country is based on your labor, your consumption and your production. economicallyvive without a population that grows. that is fed by immigration. need help in both stages. we are graduating prelude engineers, mathematicians, scientists who come from india -- who returned to india and china to apply their trades instead of staying here working for microsoft, ibm and others. we have to provide those folks for an opportunity to work here. if there is no migrant workers, there is the agricultural industry in the united states. is herer labor force undocumented. they do not contribute to our taxes. they do not contribute to our society. it is important to get them out of the shadows and into the mainstream. we would not prosper as a nation without a reasonable immigration policy moving forward, one that fluctuates. the number of people allowed to come to america should be based on the number of opp

sanctions ever. it's having a significant effect. >> on the economy? >> there is the president of the united states saying it could take a year for iran to develop a nuclear weapon. let's discuss what is going on. that's the first time i heard the president give such a specific timeline, within a year or so iran could have a nuclear weapon. that sounds pretty ominous. >> it does sound ominous. what it shows you is what a difficult diplomatic challenge the president has. because they're negotiating with iran through the six-party talks which are taking place in kazakhstan and there the united states has made some offers that are, you know, trying to help iran move to a kind of win-win place. now he is managing the other dimension of this which is israel. he is trying to convince the israelis that he is serious, that he sees that there is not an infinite amount of time, and he said later in the interview all options are on the table. when i say all options i mean military force and we have substantial capabilities. so he's trying to manage the iranian clock as well as the israeli clock. >> so

to shoot straight and say, it's not as if our government's going to collapse tomorrow or the economy is going to collapse tomorrow if we do nothing. but it's time to quit kicking the can down the road. you know, the folks on the other side of the aisle have talked about a balanced approach. but there's nothing balanced about a budget that doesn't balance. frankly the republican proposal is a relatively modest one. we grow government by 3.5% a year over the next ten years and balance the budget to, you know, put our kids and grand kids in a better position. >> obviously a big issue is going to be medicare. congressman cartwright, i want to get you to respond to something that senator corker says he wants president obama to do. here's what he said over the weekend. >> when the president uses his bully pulpit to explain to the american people that families are only paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we will know that we've begun the process of trying to solve this problem. i hope that happens as soon as he gets back from israel. >> congressman cartwright, i know there's a lot of
